from the Calgary Sun,
Chants of “Iggy, Iggy” that punctuated the fight gave way to a sombre buzz in the building when fans started noticing their leader had gone straight to the dressing room after serving his five minutes.
With team doctors tending to Iginla throughout the third period, Flames officials reported late in the evening Iginla had suffered a lower-body injury and wouldn’t return. That’s all they’d say. While press-time speculation swirled around a possible wrist injury, coach Jim Playfair would only say the injury didn’t occur during the scrap. Replays showed a pre-fight hit along the boards by Allen, suggesting Iginla’s left knee twist awkwardly.
Either injury is potentially devastating for one of the league’s top snipers.
